COMING UP EMPTY

A quartet of hitmakers from the '70s is looking to get back to the garage...



The Cars' Elliot Easton, Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Romantics lead singer Wally Palmar and Chesterfield Kings bassist Andy Babiuk have formed the Empty Hearts, enlisting the assistance of Faces pianist Ian McLagan and Ramones producer-engineer Ed Stasium on their debut album, "The Empty Hearts," which will be released on Aug. 5, followed by an October-November tour of the U.S.

    1. The preview sounds pretty good...although I'm sure I'll be the only person who actually purchases the album...

  2. IDK, that sounded good enough that there has to be some people out there will still buy it. They just don't do music like that anymore.

    1. CW-I have an upcoming post about how far album sales have fallen...the numbers amazed me

      They may not do music like that any more, but the people who remember music like that do not appear to be buying new music.
